Nintendo’s weekly update adds 3DS demos for Style Savvy and Freakyforms

Things are relatively slow in the Nintendo Download, the mega-publisher’s weekly update on new additions to its various digital download services. It has DSi games, no WiiWare games, and (of course) no new Virtual Console games. Basically, Nintendo is only worrying about 3DS owners for now, almost as if it has something more important to be concerned with.

But if you are lucky enough to own the only console Nintendo cares about this week, you can download a demo for the recently released Style Savvy: Trendsetters. As you may recall from an earlier Nintendo Download, the full Trendsetters game is available on the 3DS eShop, meaning that if you like the demo, you can go ahead and get the full game all from the comfort of your bathroom (or wherever you play your 3DS).

If fashion isn’t your thing, a demo for Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations, Alive! is coming Monday. It looks like some sort of platformer crossed with a role-playing game, where you create everything that inhabits the world, Drawn To Life-style. Its art style has considerable adorableness, but Freakyforms’ customization options look varied enough that you can bastardize that adorableness into terrifying banana creatures, so that’s pretty cool. You can see a full trailer at the game’s official site.

Although Nintendo didn’t choose to feature it in its update, 2 Fast 4 Gnomz, a new 3DS eShop game, is also available this week. The gameplay looks reminiscent of the Canabalt-style games that are so popular on iOS. But what sets this one apart is that you get to play as a guy that looks like David the Gnome, and you’re trying to collect socks, which is great. Also, the name is probably a reference to 2 Fast 2 Furious, which is weird. You can download it for $4.99 on the eShop starting today.

Nintendo has also added a pair of new videos, including three new trailers for Fractured Soul and a new episode of Meat or Die: Coco & Chilling, which I have to assume is considerably less gruesome than it sounds.
